Chrome Hill

By chrisfroud
Chrome Hill in the Peak District at sunrise yesterday morning. I've been wanting this shot for a while now and it was worth leaving the house at 2am! However, I didn't realise the farmer no longer allows parking at his farm below the hill so the two mile jog from Earl Sterndale at 5am wasn't so welcome!

1/4s @ f/16, 0.3 and 0.9 soft ND grad

blimey, i bet you were very knackered by the time you got up Parkhouse!

Great shot, I can see now what Keith was suggesting now when I was there with Northscape a year or 2 ago.

Nice one Chris.

I parked at the bottom on Chrome when I was there the other month.

There's a sign now saying "Private Land - No Parking" The last thing I needed was an angry farmer with a shot gun Smile
